What are the benefits of Jnantik Mayan Mother’s Tea?
The Mayan Seed is an amazing superfood beverage for pregnant and new mothers
The Mayan Seed is a natural galactogogue, helping with an INCREASE in milk production.
It is high in nutrients like calcium, iron, potassium and magnesium that your body needs for baby’s growth and your own recovery.
It is high in tryptophan, which creates more serotonin in your brain and leaves you feeling happy and relieved of stress (which any mom can use more of)!
It has a rich, roasted and earthy flavor making it an incredible coffee alternative during pregnancy and lactation when coffee intake is typically limited. (If you don't love the coffee taste, but want the nutrients, try adding it to smoothies and baked goods instead! Or, buy the Mayan Superfood Powder instead, since it is the same seed, but not roasted).
It is soothing to the stomach and aids in healthy gut flora since it is high in prebiotic fiber. This can help with nausea and heartburn that typically is experienced during pregnancy.
It is high in antioxidants and is alkalizing to your body aiding in overall good health and immunity.
IF USING AS A SUPPLEMENT TO BOOST MILK SUPPLY: DRINK 2-4 CUPS A DAY!
Where do you source your seed from? The Maya Nut is harvested from the Maya Tree (bread nut) that grows in Mexico and South and Central America. This particular blend was ecologically wild harvested by families from an indigenous Mayan community in the mountains of Jalisco, Mexico and roasted and ground with love. The ancient Mayans survived on this super food in times of famine. It can be used in anything from tortillas, bread, drinks, smoothies to ice cream! Brew, sip, enjoy and reap the benefits of this magnificent Mayan super food!
Customer Feedback on the Jnantik Mayan Mother's Tea:
"The Mayan Seed Tea saves me on long days where motherhood has me feeling burnt out. I am so thankful for the presence of this superfood in my life"
"It's great! I Have so much more energy. My baby is sleeping longer. I think it could be because he's getting more milk"
"I just added ice to it (prepared drink) and it's delicious! I'm going to get hooked on it :)"
"I noticed that my milk supply was much lower 5 months into pregnancy. I've been having 2 cups a day for the past week, and now even at 7 months pregnant I have plenty of milk for Reina. My toddler thanks you."
- Jennifer claimed that her milk supply dropped after a stressful situation in her life occurred and she was ready to feel like her milk supply was up again. She said that other lactation teas and supplements did not quite work and you had to drink about 9 cups of it to feel results. She loved that you only had to drink a cup or two a day of Mayan Mother's Tea to feel results. She claimed just one day after starting to drink Mayan Mother's Tea that "I feel like it is already working!"
-Nicole was having low energy during her pregnancy with her second child due to so much responsibility. She started drinking the Mayan Mother's Tea and expressed that it gave her a lot of energy and she felt more nurtured after drinking it.
FAQ- What is the difference between the Mayan Coffee Alternative and the Mayan Mother's Tea? A- Nothing! They are both the same great product, roasted and ground wild-harvested Mayan Seed. However, we created a separate "Mayan Mother's Tea Label" because of the many benefits this seed has for pregnant women, lactating mothers and all mothers! It provides many nutrients we need during these times, aids in milk production and stress relief!
The Founder's Experience: When Danielle had her first baby, she felt something that many moms around the world feel when they are breastfeeding their babies. She felt that she was not producing enough milk but she persisted, and persisted and succeeded. When their baby boy was three months old, they visited her husband’s family in Jalisco, Mexico. At a visit with Cesar's great-grandmother, she told Danielle that she felt instinctively that she was not producing enough milk. She offered her a traditional Mayan beverage that she used to drink while nursing her 13 children. Danielle drank it and almost instantly felt full of milk, and she cried with satisfaction when she heard her baby taking gulps. As these full feedings continued, she witnessed positive mood changes.
After this experience, she became convinced that she needed to share this with the world. She knew that so many mothers struggle to produce milk for various reasons, and it is so easy to give up and start giving their child formula. Yet here was an even better alternative, taking this amazing super drink. It helps a mama produce more of the healthiest food in the world for their babies, filled with all of the live enzymes and antibodies that a baby needs to build a strong immune system in this world. "The least we can do for our children is give them a strong start," she thought to herself.
As a holistic health counselor who works with mothers and families, she knew that sharing this product was a good idea. She and her husband started investigating more about the drink and learned that this drink is not only amazing for nursing women, but also is great for pregnant women, vegetarians (due to high protein and iron content), children, and all beings! She learned that more than 70 species rely on it to survive, and that the planting of this tree can combat the effects of global warming! Who would not want to support something so incredible, especially after the experience of empowerment of being able to feed her child?
She continues to breastfeed her third baby successfully with the help of drinking this tea daily. She feels powered through this experience of mothering three boys by drinking this drink every day. It tastes delicious (like coffee and cocoa!), and is filled with iron, folic acid, tryptophan, protein, fiber and many other nutrients that make her feel well-nurtured.
